There are over 100 places to stay in and around the tour. Visit the Chambers of Commerce in Mitchell and Yancey Counties. Then there’s AirBnB and Vacation Rentals. And artists who have vacation rentals available including Becky Gray and Richard KennedyYummy Mud Puddle, and Mary Vogel. And Penland School has a great listing of accommodations.

Come to the mountains and experience what it’s like to be a part of the natural world, if only for a weekend. Return home after a day of meandering roadways, welcoming studios, and awarding-winning art to the sanctity and peace of a place just a stone’s throw away. Feel the freshness of the air, the strength of the surrounding mountains and the warmth of a summer’s day as you relax and listen to the birds welcome the quiet evening.
